“Miami Beach keeper on a budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Stayed here based on other tripadvisor reviews and it was great.
We are super active and use our room mostly for sleep and to freshen up.
The rest of our stay was taking in all the South Beach has to offer so why
spend big $$$ on a room when your never there.
Great location 1 block off the main strip. Nice little courtyard to relax
at night with a drink and watch people shuffle by.
Rooms are small but have everything you need for a short or longer stay.
Kitchen, dining room and bathroom were more then adequate.
Parking at garages down the street were fine @ 25 per day but that's what you expect.
Who needs a pool when South Beach is a block away?

Practically perfect in every way!

I stayed here in January of 2014. Good things are many about this property. The rooms were clean and spacious. Mine was on the lower floor, and had bedroom/dining room and full kitchen. It was a very pretty room, and always well maintained and cleaned. The wifi is free, and worked reasonably well. Never was out, and I didn't have a problem in logging on.

Location wise, this is a 5 min walk from the beach, and smack dab in the Art Deco area of South Beach. Close to many restaurants, bistros, and walking distance to Lincoln Road Mall ( 15 mins). Construction of a Walgreens (full service drugstore/ with cheap food sales) is happening across the street, and that will provide the ultimate of convenience for those staying here. It is relatively short taxi ride to the Miami International Airport as well. It's a flat fare, however. I wasn't bothered by the traffic, as I stayed at the rear of the property. Security was good--cameras visible and covered both exits.

The price I paid was excellent for all of the above.

For me, two slight downsides, and they are relatively minor. The kitchen in my room had a gas powered stove/oven, and no microwave. If not familiar with using a natural gas appliance, the lack of a microwave is a bit inconvenient. However, it definitely isn't a deal breaker. The property isn't fully accessible. Even on the ground floor, you need to walk up 3 or 4 stairs to access your suite.

All of that being said..this is still a gem of a property, and I would stay here in a heartbeat!!

I brought my seven and nine year old to Miami for the boat show last week and stayed here. It's location is perfect, the price was fair and the room was clean. The rooms have full kitchens and it is a block from the beach so it is perfect for families. I recommend it highly, and I look forward to returning next year.

Me and my girlfriend spent 10 days at the Villa Paradiso hotel last august.
It has a great location right in the middle of all the things to do in South Beach. It turned out as quite the oasis of calmness for us amidst the hectic and noisy streets of SoBe.

The staff was very friendly and especially a nice woman named Judith went out of her way to make our stay comfortable, giving us pointers about what to see and do. Thanks to her and the others we got to do everything we wanted while in Miami.

Rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Staff cleaned our room every morning. Nothing fancy but more than adequate for us. Only negative I can point out is that the AC was a bit loud but it didn't bother us much.

If you want a hotel right in the middle of SoBe, close to the beach, shopping and restaurants - the VP is a good choice for you. Recommended!

Its quite a small cosy hotel, the rooms are large with fully equiped kitchen. Cleaning is first class. The location is perfect and Collins Av. is relatively quiet. You will find a municipal parking just 2 blocks south.

Very good location, staff very king and helpful, enough space in the bedrooms, very quiet place, perfectly clean.
Very nice place to stay in south beach, a sure value where to stay: no deception.
It is not a very high standard hotel but ir is perfect if you are juste looking for a nice and quiet place to stay in south beach at an affordable price in a very good location.

Room Tip: Rooms in the patio are quieter

We found the Villa Paradiso to be quaint and lovely. Great location. Short walk to the beach. It has a delightful garden where we could sit and have a glass of wine and take in the passing scene. We appreciated the upgrade to a suite at no extra cost. The suite was roomy and very comfortable. However, a few suggestions: Darker curtains for both rooms would block the bright alley light. For the front room of the suite, instead of a bed, perhaps a couch with a hideaway bed so folks could watch TV in the front room instead of the bedroom located in the second room. For the bedroom, a lounge chair for sitting. The day manager, Manuel was very helpful and friendly. We would recommend the villa to our friends and/or relatives.

Room Tip: Rooms further back from the street are quieter. Though, being in the back like we were, you could he...
